Fashionable Relay Challenge #31

YAY - Fashionable Relay Challenge - I'm very pleased to participate and want to send a shout out of thanks to Sasy Scarborough for the idea and organization of this relay!

Who knew that yesterday I would receive the baton on the same day that I had RL surgery. Lucky for me I'm not in much pain and am able to still hold the baton, though maybe a bit slow and easy going.

Thank you to the lovely Cajsa Lilliehook for her post #30 on It's Only Fashion blog. I decided to go with a store that I hadn't been to before where Cajsa got her pants. I decided to stick with the "bloody" red and form a whole new twist to the punk rocker style pants that they are.

I'm calling this look Posh Chic Rock. Starting with the low rise striped pants in blood from Fear & Clothing by Damon Dollinger. I wanted to take these red and black stripes to a new level.
The first thing I pulled was immediately the sequin tank top in pewter by Tuli that would make the look stand out from the crowd. It is one of her newer releases in clothing that I grabbed while in attendance at the recently clothing fair for RFL.

I wanted some sort of jacket, I was thinking of a nice jean jacket but to get it to go chic would need something different. I pulled an oldie but a greatie from my inventory collection - the dictator shrug in black by Digit Darkes.

I had the most difficulty with what to do next. I wanted to put a skirt over the pants a but, something wild and funky without taking out the whole pant. I initially pulled an old Canimal skirt but it is no longer available and is part of a full outfit which goes against the rules of this relay. Instead I went shopping back at Digit Darkes where I knew I had seen this tulle skirt from another excursion. I did a mod by making a copy and removing the front prims to make it part and then raised it a bit higher on my avatar to make it look like it was attached to the shrug jacket.

Next I pulled out the hair that I knew would turn the look more chic - if you're a fashion feed browser I'm sure you've seen this hair before from VW (VINTAGEwear) by Vintage McMillan called Pushed and Shoved.

Shoes were next and not so easy either. At first I tried boots but it wasn't doing it for me and making the outfit too black heavy. As soon as I put on the frenzy banana shoes in black by Onyx LeShelle of Maitreya it was perfect!

As for accessories, it was pretty easy to pull the look off. I added the studded belt in black by Trinitee Trilam of Refuge. A menu controlled color change skull flower by Antonia Marat of Artilleri. And something not often seen in world, glasses hanging from a necklace (GH n68 in Red) that I picked up awhile back from Ottico by Youki Rau.

As for skin, I wanted to show off one the newest releases from Mayden Ushimawa of Mayden Couture, it is called Lilith N5. And the easter lilac eyes are freebies from Lano Ling of Poetic Colors which if you're quick enough you can get them as I did from the Bunny Hop hunt #011. And last but not least, the tattoo is something that I am commonly wearing these days called Ivy 1 by Kuja Akina of The Obscene.

Using the skirt as part of jacket is so brilliant. I love the skirt and the sequin top. I don't know if I can top-up that. By the way, I've just posted mine.

Wonderful post!
Very inspiring!
I popped into Artilleri to pick up the hairflower, but couldn't find it anywhere.
Any Suggestions?

Zoe Demar said...

Thank you for your comments :) I had a lot of fun participating - even though it felt like forever since the relay challenge started.

@ Dahlindah Destiny - I sent an inquiry to Antonia about the skull flower. I honestly did not go to the store to see if it was for sale or not. I hope it wasn't part of a gift. I apologize if that is the case and will update you when I receive feedback.

Dahlindah Destiny said...

Got chatting, and found out it was an advent giftie from xmas!

Zoe Demar said...

AH! Dat nab it, so hard to keep track what is from what.

Thank you for finding out and I apologize it isn't something available.
